  • Description

    Description

    We are a family run organic property 320 kilometres north west of Alice Springs in the Northern Territory. It is situated on the edge of the Tanami Desert. Volunteering here gives you the opportunity to experience the real Australian outback and to stay in one of the more remote parts of the country. You will get to participate in a really unique way of life.

    My sons Robert and Allan and his family also live and work on the station.

    We run 5000 beef cattle which are sold to the domestic market.
    We have internet and telstra mobile coverage. The internet is free for all.
